PLV-Z700 User Memory Settings
The Sanyo Z700 has five user savable settings. I recommend you use these, as switching back and forth causes the regular presets, like Creative Cinema to reset to default settings. You want to create the variations you will be using and store them into these memories. You can calibrate yourself, hire a professional, or drop in the settings we list below, from our calibration.
PLV-Z700 Projector: Remote Control
Overall, the Sanyo PLV-Z700 has a great remote. The backlight is a bright reddish-pink (pure red backlights are hard to read, this has more white component, and is easy to read).
Power, Menu, and the keypad are all up near the top. Down the left side below the Screen button (aspect ratio), are all the direct input buttons.
Going down the center and the right sides, first come the Preset, and User savable memory access buttons. Then are a host of direct access buttons: Brightness, Contrast, Color Temp, and Sharpness. Down at the bottom right, are more controls, including No Show (blank screen), Lamp control, and image Freeze.
PLV-Z700: Lens Throw and Lens Shift
The Sanyo PLV-Z700 has a 2:1 manual zoom lens that allows the projector to sit as close as 9.8 feet from a 100" diagonal 16:9 screen, or as far back as 20 feet (measured from the front of the lens). From these numbers you can figure out the range for any screen size. For example, if your screen is 10% larger - 110" diagonal, then add 10% to those distances.
The PLV-Z700 has extensive vertical and horizontal lens shift range as well.
You can move the image up or down as needed. If you are not using horizontal lens shift (most don't), there's enough range in the vertical lens shift to move the image up or down 1.5 screen heights from the center position.
